Managed Futures and Futures offered through National Securities Corporation.
Insurance products offered through National Insurance Corporation (NIC).
Securities in accounts carried by NFS are protected in accordance with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) up to $500,000 (including cash claims limited to $100,000). To supplement its SIPC coverage, NFS has arranged for additional protection for cash and covered securities from Lloyd’s of London which currently has an A (Excellent) rating from ratings firm AM Best and an A+ (Strong) ratings with “Stable Outlook” from Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s.(1) This additional protection covers up to an aggregate loss limit of $1 billion for all customer claims, of which $1.9 million may cover cash awaiting reinvestment at the individual account level. This is the highest level of excess SIPC coverage currently available. For more information on Lloyd’s of London, please go to www.lloyds.com. Neither coverage protects against a decline in the market value of securities.
Asset allocation strategies and diversification do not guarantee against loss or provide assurance of positive returns. Futures trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves the risk of loss. Futures are a leveraged investment, and because only a percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money deposited for a futures position. Therefore, investors should only use funds that they can afford to lose without affecting their lifestyles.
South Coast Wealth Management is not an affiliate of NSC, NAM, NIC or NFS.
